Dairy Cows Fed Coffee Creamer For Best Milk Results At Award-Winning Farm

DONAHUE, Iowa (CBS Local) — The number two dairy farm in the country for milk production is feeding its cows an unusual ingredient: coffee creamer.

“This is an oddball ingredient,” said John Maxwell, farmer and owner of Cinnamon Ridge Farms in Donahue, Iowa. “It does sound a little cannibalistic, but that’s not true at all.”

The cows are being fed half a pound of powdered coffee creamer a day mixed with other cow favorites like hay, which adds up to four pounds of milk per cow daily.

Maxwell says it makes the milk taste better. But that’s not the only reason he’s feeding it to his cows.
